Hariprasad Chaurasia

With his virtuousic blowing technique, Hariprasad Chaurasia has turned the Bansuri (bamboo) flute into an instrument of beauty. Blending the musical traditions of India with imagination and innovation, Chaurasia has reached beyond classical music to create a sound of his own. Presented with the national award of the Sangeet Natak Academy in 1984, Chaurasia received the Gaurav Puraskar from the state government of Maharashtra, India in 1990, the Padma Bhushan and the Konarak Samman in 1992 and the Yash Bharati Sanman in 1994. In addition to recording as a soloist, Chaurasia has collaborated with such jazz musicians as John McLaughlin and Jan Garbarek. His compositions have been heard in several Indian films including Silsila, which he co-wrote with Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma.

Although he began his musical studies as a vocalist, Chaurasia switched to the flute after hearing a performance by Pandit Bholanath a year later. Inspired by what he heard, Chaurasia spent the next eight years studying with Bholanath. He later studied with surbahar player Shrinimati Annapurna Devi, the daughter of Ustad Allaudin Khan and the siter of Ali Akbar Khan. In 1957, Chaurasia began playing and composing material for All India Radio in Calcutta. Ten years later, he collaborated with Shivkumar Sharma and Brijbhushan Kabra on a much-celebrated raga suite, "Call Of The Valley." ~ Craig Harris, Rovi

Ok. Close your eyes, take a deep breath and lets exteriorize out into deep space a few billion light years. Now, open your eyes and look around. Purdy huh and cold too. Which way is up? It isn't; there are only 14 basic directions relative to something. Well, the music is nice...I forgot to tell you...no air; no sound. Ok, Ok, now you whannah go home? Earth? So, where is Earth? Just teasing. Close your eyes, click your heels together three times and repeat after me...No place like hom
Enjoy, relax, feel!!!

Me too! I don't know music, but I like to listen to all kinds of flutes (among other stuff, like everyone else). And I find his work especially intriguing; in part, I'm sure, because I love listening to Indian music, so his play enlivens that aesthetic for me, too. Good stuff!

Enjoyed his work very much
